deb, I had never met a fish I didn't like until I met the striped bass. To me they have an extremely tough texture and a strong, unpleasant taste, but these were freshwater fish, not saltwater, so there might be a difference. Before you cook it, check to see if there is a reddish stripe running from front to back (that is the lateral stripe) and you definitely want to remove that!

freshwater black, bronzeback, or green bass are very different than the similarly named salt water striped bass.

i agree otter, i don't like freshwater bass that much. i fish for them a lot, but i usually release them, unless i'm camping by the lake and can clean 'em and get 'em on the fire asap. very boney too.

saltwater striped bass is good eatin', but you shouldn't have it more than once a month or so because of heavy metal concerns. no, not becuse they're head banging rock and rollers, but i mean because they can have high levels of mercury and the like.

they're both fun to catch, black bass in lakes around structure and striped bass in the surf.
